Earlier this year, Paramount Pictures took a swing and a miss by releasing the first trailer for its upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog flick.
The response to that trailer was not great, with many people complaining about Sonic’s uncanny valley look.
Fans of the blue blur criticized everything from Sonic’s vaguely human proportions to the way his teeth looked and the shape of his eyes.
There’s no denying that movie Sonic looked far different from video game Sonic and fans of the franchise were not pleased about that.
After a few days of heavy criticism, Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter to announced that the VFX team would be tweaking Sonic’s design before the movie’s release, which was subsequently pushed back to February 14th, 2020.
Now, some six months later, we’re seeing the final result of Fowler’s decision to go back to the drawing board.
